Carter is due TOMORROW!

Tomorrow, February 16, 2011, is Carter’s actual due date!  It’s hard to believe that such an active little boy could still be inside of me!  It’s even harder to imagine having to have been on bed rest for the last 50+days!

Baby Carter has been growing like a weed and is 8lbs as of today!  He’s eating & sleeping every 3-4 hours and is still breast-feeding like a champ.  Since we’ve been home, he’s grown eyelashes and stays awake for up to 2 hours, after eating.  While on his tummy, he can now lift and turn his head from side to side.

When I was about 3 months pregnant, Chris introduced me to his friend’s wife, Ginna Lowrey.  She was pregnant with her first child, and was due on Feb 3rd, only 2 weeks before me!  We instantly became close friends and had fun comparing notes about our pregnancies.

We’ve both been anticipating the day when we would be able to introduce the boys and that day finally arrived!  Earlier today, Ginna and her Mom brought Baby Davis over to meet Carter.  The boys shared a blanket and just stared at each other.  They napped side-by-side while we ate lunch and were perfect little angels.  I’m so excited for them to grow up together, and hopefully remain close childhood friends.

For my birthday, I had a past Client of mine, Christina Klahn, come out to our house to take pictures of our little man.  What a morning!  Chris was holding him, smiling for sweet Daddy/son pictures, when Carter decided to poop out his entire breakfast and then some.  Chris calmly said he needed a towel, but the liquid, bright orange poo was quickly seeping through his hands, and onto our eggshell colored carpet.  FREAKING FABULOUS!  Did I mention that this happened within the first five minutes of the photo-shoot?!

Getting sweet pictures of naked newborns is not an easy feat!  But, Christina managed to get some remarkable shots (click to view all) of our little man.  Take a look at her blog, if you want to view even more cute newborn shots!

We are finally bringing our puppies home from my Parent’s house this weekend.  I’m looking forward to seeing them interact with Carter.  They’ve already played with Carter multiple times at my Parent’s house, but it will be fun to see them cuddle with him at our house.  All of my babies under one roof; I can’t wait!!
